DILLON FRANCIS + DROP THE LIME + DR HOLLYWOOD

Dillon Francis

DILLON FRANCIS‘ ode to the Pubahs has a step on the original track’s sexual euphemisms. Well actually, it strips the metaphors entirely but keeps enough of the original to make me feel a little nostalgic. It reminds me of the time I stole a 12″ white label of “Sandwiches” when I was doing contract work at a radio station in Edmonton, Alberta. I probably could have asked for it…the station would never play this record (I don’t even think they had turntables in the studios) so I figured I’d save everyone the trouble.

MP3: Dillon Francis feat Dirt Nasty – Sandwiches (Ode to the Pubahs mix)

When I was in university I ran into a friend from high school in a parking lot in my home town. He was in his Dodge Daytona listening to Celine Dion. I asked him why he was playing such garbage and he told me the album had a lot of bass. Now 15 years later I wonder if he likes dubstep. I doubt he knows what it is but you do so click below.

MP3: Dr. Hollywood – We Run the Club (Dillon Francis remix)

I CAN’T TURN THIS UP LOUD ENOUGH! This remix of DROP THE LIME wobbles my face off.

MP3: Drop the Lime – Sex Sax (Dillon Francis’ choose your own adventure remix)

NROTB x Drop The Lime

While it may not seem fair to some, but having that talent to drop two fun remixes of the same tune. People will be jealous of course, people will bitch and moan, people will call you out, but we all know the facts. NROTB bring it with everything they got, well dressed, well mixed, well done.

DROP THE LIME is another bringer who brings it like bringing it is going out of style. I’d suggest gauging which tune to drop in your DJ set depending on the crowd’s Neon Bracelet to Black Eyeliner ratio. If it’s 1:1, play both back to back for 11 plus minutes of killer rave fun.

MANALOGUE MIX

Uh, I finally recorded a mix. It’s been a year since I’ve done one successfully. I tried in December and January with while holding my son but they didn’t go so well.

Funny though, I really wanted to make a mix of summer indie tunes but nothing came together the way I wanted it to. In the end, I recording a wobbly electro something. It’s not perfect but it’s still pretty fun.

THE SHAKE

Every Friday Lotek and I produce and host a weekly radio show on 92.9 KICK FM. The initial format for the show was all remixes-of-songs-you-probably-know and mashups but more often than not we play a lot of new electro. Lately, the wobble gets me moving so I play as much bass music as possible. It’s funny, I still think it sounds like UK garage / speed garage / UKG. Since a few of the tunes played tonight were sent to this blog, I figured I’d make a huge post of that material…time is super limited these days. (The material without download links I bought / don’t have permission to share.)

Classixx - I'll Get You

I grabbed this one from beatport. It’s a wicked summer house tune.

01.

Windowlicker

I’ve always been a huge Aphex Twin fan. ZUCKR‘s remix modernizes the tune and tweaks it for the dancefloor.

02. Aphex Twin – Windowlicker (Zuckr’s Breakbeat Chop mix)

TEVAR does a simple but clever A+B mashup. Ace material really. Normally I try not to play two of the same tracks in a set, never mind back to back. I thought these went well together though.

03. Aphex Twin vs M.I.A. – Windowlickin’ (Tevar mashup)

Kiss

GIVE ME A KISS are some of my new fav’s. This track is so Justice and so good! Wicked build up and perfect for an opening set.

04. Give Me a Kiss – No More Patient (Original mix)

No1Else

Seriously heavy electro from NO1ELSE.

05.

Trouble & Bass - Scion A/V

Courtesy of SCION A/V. DROP THE LIME has been all over my business with his wobble.

06. Drop the Lime – Howling (Original mix)

More wobble. I love this tune and shamelessly played it on the show before.

07. Dolby Anol - Puppies (Blende remix)

Bloc Party

The second BLOC PARTY remix album is amazing. The ARMAND VAN HELDEN remix was the first single off of Intimacy Remixed.

08. Bloc Party – Signs (Armand Van Helden remix)

CZ

This track is so subtle and kind of draws me in by surprise with its minimal club wobble combo.

09. Cubic Zirconia – Fuck Work (Proper Villains and Jubilee remix)

Stanton Warriors

When I lived in Brighton, I was lucky enough to see STANTON WARRIORS nearly every month. They put on a great show and their production is incredible and so adaptable. This one’s off of the Stanton Sessions Vol. 3 compilation.

10. Stanton Warriors feat Too Short – Raw Meat

Both sides of this single are incredible. The flip is a bit cheeky, but everyone likes hearing it.

11.

Dance Area

Later on, I dropped one of their CORRECT EFFECT‘s originals but for now, here’s an ace remix of DANCE AREA.

12. Dance Area – 24/7 (Correct Effect remix)

Pance Party

For some reason I had doubts about PANCE PARTY. Perhaps it was because they sent their tunes as M4As. Maybe they’ll read this and send Manalogue MP3 replacements?

13. Deejay Raph – FMIF (Pance Party remix)

You’ve heard this one before.

14. Dirty Disco Youth – Eye of the Tiger

Correct Effect

This is the CORRECT EFFECT referenced earlier. So gritty but rolls so nice.

15. Correct Effect – Effective (Original mix)

WOBBLE. SQUARED.

16.

Clubby maximalism from Eli Smith.

17. Eli Smith – Party All Night (DJ version)

STAR EYES + MIKIX THE CAT

STAR EYES has been DJing since the age of 15 and played around the world. She’s about to drop her first EP, released on TROUBLE & BASS, straight from the darkest corner of the warehouse. The single from the EP, “Disappear” is co-produced with DROP THE LIME. It’s a song about the agony and ecstasy of rave, with monster acid bass, massive reverb, and brain-twisting backwards vocals. MIKIX THE CAT turns in a hard-hitting house remix that will have you punching walls.


MP3: Star Eyes – Disappear (Mikix the Cat remix)

DROP THE LIME

Whether you want to call it garage revival or not, I’m looking forward to an evening of bass courtesy of DROP THE LIME when he visits the HIFI CLUB here in Winnipeg on Saturday. Local taste-makers TROMPE LE MONDE provide support before hand – this one’s going to be sick. If you’re not familiar take a peep below.
